Hi Group -

 

I picked up this rusty T-33 throttle on eBay recently.  It's all there - the flap switch moves and the mic button moves, it's just a bit rusty as you can see.  I might take it apart and refinish the handle - anyone here ever take apart a T-Bird throttle?  Anything I need to watch out for?

Here's some photos of the numbers cast on the base along with an assembly stamp.  What is the prefix for T-33 parts?

I have a different version of this throttle with the red "hat" at the top.  I would be weary of the UV-baked plastic containing the switches - it's probably pretty brittle.

P-80 prefix numbers are 174+, 175+, and 176+. T-33 prefix numbers are 176+, 177+ and 178+. Keep in mind you  will find P-80 numbers on a T-33, but you will not find T-33 numbers on a P-80.   Your 177+ number confirms T-33.
